Blizzard Censors Overwatch: “Now Safe For SJWs!”


Blizzard’s cel-shaded shooter Overwatch has become subjected to censorship, due to one particularly “offended” fan deciding that one of Tracer’s poses turns her into a “sex symbol”; the statement apparently holding so much weight that Blizzard developers are planning to remove the pose from the game altogether.

The heinously offensive pose:


The fan thread in question prompted an suitably supine response from game director Jeff Kaplan:

We’ll replace the pose.

We want *everyone* to feel strong and heroic in our community. The last thing we want to do is make someone feel uncomfortable, under-appreciated or misrepresented.

Apologies and we’ll continue to try to do better.

Naturally, fans of the game with any semblance of intelligence have caused a backlash against this rather sudden and one-sided decision, providing a number of logical explanations as to how this “atrocious pose” does not sexualize the fictional girl – Blizzard has yet to comment on the situation again however, let alone rescind the decision.

However, this is not the first time the game has been censored due to feminist outrage – one map in the game possesses an outhouse with a heap of magazines littered beneath the door, suggesting an innocent onanism joke, but a recent update has seen to the sudden disappearance of the magazines in question and any suggestion of patriarchal suppression of the master sex:

    That IS an offensive pose. She doesn't have nearly enough ass to pull off a pose like that.

    Not all asses have to be giant piles of fat and muscle that threatens to swallow everything that passes near them like some horrible brown hole of death.

    Small asses can be nice too, yo.

    I am offended by her skin-tight jumpsuit. I will feel uncomfortable and under-appreciated unless she's completely bottomless.

    Are you real? It happened and they called it Gamergate. It made anyone who opposed SJWs look like some kind of mysogynist nazi psycho terrorist. Now even mentioning the shit they're fucking up can get you on employment blacklists.

    It wasn't GamerGate that made that negative image. That was just the SJWs resorting to their usual dirty tactics: getting their buddies in the mainstream media to ensure that nobody can ever dissent from their opinions lest they be branded a misogynist, then a racist, then a rapist, and now a terrorist apparently.

    The employment blacklist thing is real. I know several people who have been barred/blocked/fired from various events/jobs just for disagreeing with feminists.

    What do they want? its simple they want control.
    they want control over what you say,wear and think
    they want control over the media you view and how that media looks and what message it presents.
    if that message is not fat,trans,bi, gender fluid, ect. positive and especially anti female/feminist it does not have the right to exist and should be destroyed.
    and as for you! you should be arrested and thrown in the deepest darkest hole that can be found for viewing/enjoying media that is not fat,trans,bi, gender fluid positive and especially anti female/feminist

    SJWs will continue to bitch about every "microaggression" that offends their delicate sensibilities no matter how much the developers tweak the game.

    In fact, they bitch even more if the developers respond like this. And they ain't gonna stop until it's been run to the ground (which is not to say that Blizzard wasn't going to do that anyway).

    Now everyone understood why the Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 did not come to the West and why games like Street Fighter V and the new Star Ocean suffer censorship in the West. The Japanese were more cautious for such cases and found that the West has changed. The fact is that feminism and political correctness killed freedom in the West and now a minority group enjoys the freedom to restrict the freedom of others .
    Apparently , the Japanese know the difference between a game and reality, but in the West , even the games do not escape the scrutiny of these people . If this continues, more and more games will suffer censorship.
    Sorry if the text was not clear , because I have no mastery of the English language.

    It's because it's not reality that the West focuses on it. They know the fictional characters can't fight back, and they can use that as an excuse to speak for them.

    Anyway, SJWs continue to insist that they don't exist and that they have zero involvement in any of these changes. It's clear they have no grasp of reality. That's another reason why they focus so heavily on fiction.

    Warcraft 3 was a frivolous game, both verbally (talks of g-strings & cum) and visually (revealing clothing like stockings, and Pantyshots). This is what Blizzard wanted and they kept all of those for The Frozen Throne expansion.

    As you can see, the current puritanism is absolutely not the design Blizzard went with. Based on the past they were pressured into belly armor Sylvanas, as well as patching out Overwatch masturbation Joke, by none other than SJWs.

    Well, if that's how it's gonna be, I'm scrapping Overwatch from my list.
    Blizzard can bend to fake morality whiners, all it's want.

    Battleborn, here I come.

    Probably viable if you can restart the planets core, or create an artificially magnetic field.

    I'd be more interested in Venus personally. If you introduce some hydrogen into the atmosphere and react it with the Co2, you'd have one almighty biblical flood.

    Wow ppl need to get a grip. If something offends you, don't watch it. If you feel it's not suitable for children, don't let YOUR kids watch it. People are too damn sensitive & politically correct nowadays. For fucks sake, it's a POSE in a videogame. Women will always be sexualized in a man's imagination, don't matter how much they kick & scream about it... Giggity.

    The fan art and SFM is literally the only thing good about this game, anyways. Hot as fuck character models = great for SFM. Don't give two shits what's in the actual game since it's bad. I'll let the SFM artists fulfill my Overwatch quota.

    Well, if that's true. Then I guess I can scratch Overwatch from my list, for benefit of Battleborn.

    Those that bow to fake morality zealots, deserve no attention from me.

    I feel under-appreciated or misrepresented by the full cast of characters of this game. None of them represents me neither appreciates my fine tastes in art and design. Cancel it altogether.
